Snacking sometimes comes followed by guilt – especially when said snack is a packet of crisps or a chocolate bar. But healthy snacking can be such a powerful tool in keeping blood sugar levels stable and also keep you from guzzling down your next meal.
My go-to choices are snacks that are high in protein and fats, as personally they’re what actually keep me satisfied. Almonds are probably king here as not only do they taste ah-mazing, but they contain 15 essential nutrients (per 100g) – so they keep me going all day long!
I’m always on the go, so I keep a collection of different sized jars – I never throw a glass jar away! – and just toss almonds or a homemade trail mix into them. When I’ve got more time on the weekends I might make a batch of my almond, banana and oat bars which are also very easily wrapped up and tossed into the bag for mid-week fuel.
